The Viceroy's Captain

(2000)
(The first book in the Caspasian series)
A novel by

 
The North West Frontier, 1926...Bandits have stolen The Eye of the Storm, a legendary diamond said to give its owner control of India. A party of Bolshevik fanatics is after it - and so is Prince Mahsud of Beshandu. The Oxford-educated Pathan prince believes that with the diamond in his hands he can lead a newly independent India. The only way to prevent a war is to get the diamond back and Sir Oswald Masterman of the Imperial intelligence service knows the right man to do it - Captain John Caspasian of the Twelfth Gurkhas. Rebellious, insubordinate and astonishingly effective, Caspasian is glad to be off desk duty and back in action. With his hand-picked assistant, Gurkha sergeant Ganga Limbu, and selection of deadly weaponry, Caspasian sets off for Beshandu disguised as the escort for a routine tribal council.
